Albert Hall Tavern
New gastropub in the burgeoning Hells Kitchenish... nabe. This is slightly south of Hells Kitchen proper. Albert Hall(love the name Albert) is a long British decorated pub that serves food some quite good. We started with warmed artichoke dip($10) served with toast points and topped with housemade potato chips. Very tasty and satisfying on a cold night. My main was classic mac and cheese($12) was a gooey, cheesey tasty version. My friend's fish and chips was perfection- $16. Expertly fried and served with thin, crispy fries, skin on cooked in duck fat and drizzled with truffle oil. The beer pictured is a Belgian wheat called Kwak served in a flask and wooden holder was a fantastic presentation. For dessert we shared the custard tart which was a cold mash-up of figs and too rustic for my taste. Charming loos.
GO! 508 9th Ave bet 38th. and 39th.
